I really like that one. the story was good and the style of animation was out of the norm.The kids like it too but not as much as I did.

It's an old Jim Henson movie from the 80's.

Happens to me when a nurses aide tells me I'm older than their Mom. I quit counting gray hairs...

Watching "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai in the Eighth Dimension," when I serve lunch.

I put the How to train your dragon DVD in for kids, they can't reach the machine and was going to go make a diner, but got stock doing something in the room for few minutes, and then I was totally hooked to the movie ,and of course did not go make the diner, It was really nice movie. Now personally I wish they would skip all that unnecessary kissing, 7-8 and 9 year olds do not really need to see any of that in cartoons, but what can I do, it was there. Loved it.

We watched Toy Story 3 last night. Had some funny stuff!
The Ken and Barbie dynamic was hilarious.

Finally watched "Love Me or Leave Me", a 1955 biography of Ruth Etting, a 1930's torch singer and her Chicago Hood manager/husband. They were flawlessly played by Doris Day and James Cagney. It was recommended by ChefJune and it didn't disappoint. It was great sharing it with Dad, who remembers Doris Day from those days and DH who doesn't, but loved it!
